Harbor House Review
Homeward Pikes Peak is a not for profit agency that provides comprehensive addiction treatment along with services for the homeless. One of the residential programs takes place at a facility called Harbor House. This is a safe, substance-free home for men and women. Above all, it offers independence for residents as they go through an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for substance use disorders and co-occurring disorders. The residential track offers clients an opportunity to learn valuable life skills, work through the beginning stages of their recovery in a safe environment, and connect to community resources.
Accommodations and Food
The Harbor House residential program offers transitional townhouses in central Colorado Springs. These apartments provide about 70 men and women a private living space that is monitored and managed by clinical staff. The units are usually for two clients or families, as long as the head of the household qualifies for the program. They provide kitchenettes, and en suite bathrooms. There are also several common areas around the complex, like a small playground and basketball hoop.
The food is donated to HPP and given to clients in this program.
